What is peach cobbler?
A cobbler is a baked fruit dessert without a bottom crust. It does however have a top crust that is a kind of biscuit dough or crumble instead of a traditional pastry or pie dough.
Ingredients for Homemade Peach Cobbler:
- all-purpose flour
- baking powder
- cinnamon (optional)
- ice cream (optional)
- whipped cream (optional)
Can I use canned peaches in peach cobbler?
If you're in a pinch and don't have time to peel fresh peaches then canned sliced peaches or frozen peaches will work in this recipe. Of course yummy straight-from-the-tree fresh peaches are the best. Sometimes you just get a hankering for a good peach cobbler in the middle of the winter and fresh peaches just aren't available – so canned will work just fine!
How to make peach cobbler:
I love this recipe because it's easier than you might think!
If you are using fresh peaches, go ahead and peel and slice them to equal 2 cups or more. Grab your saucepan and add in 1 cup of sugar (we are using white instead of brown sugar), 2-3 tablespoons of water and peaches. You'll want to cook that over medium heat and simmer until sugar is dissolved your peaches are soft.
Next, melt 1 stick of butter and pour into a 9×9-inch baking dish.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, ¾ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder and 3/4 cup milk until smooth. Pour the batter over your butter. Do not stir.
Spoon peaches over batter. Do not stir. This seems backwards but it works I promise! Sprinkle with cinnamon, if desired.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until golden brown and bubbly.
Let cool and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!
What is the difference in a dump cake and a cobbler?
This recipe is a traditional peach cobbler recipe that is easy to make. However, you can easily turn this into a dump peach cobbler recipe. The difference being with a dump cake you pretty much just dump all the ingredients without any other prep. 🙂 That makes this recipe a great choice when you're in a hurry!
Use 3 (21 oz) cans of undrained peaches and a box of cake mix instead of your dry ingredients listed above. Dump the peaches into a baking dish and sprinkle with the cake mix. Next, top your cake mix with 1 – 2 sticks of butter, and then sprinkle your cinnamon on top. Place it in your preheated oven at 350 degrees and cook for 45 – 50 minutes.
If you're short on time, this option is just as tasty!
Does peach cobbler need to be refrigerated?
Cobblers can be left out on the counter overnight or for a couple of days. We recommend refrigerating if you don't think you can eat within a day or two.
We NEVER have that problem at our house though! 🙂
How do you reheat peach cobbler?
The best way to reheat cobbler is the same method you cooked it – just reheat it right in the oven.
Reheat at 350°F for about 15 minutes or until warmed through. Cover with aluminum foil if it looks like it's getting too browned. Or you can pop in the microwave if you're in a hurry too! 🙂

Why is my peach cobbler soggy?
If you find that your cobbler ended up a little more runny than you'd like, it may either need to cool a bit more OR the fruit you used was extra juicy. Be sure to allow your cobbler to cool completely before serving to help avoid a soggy cobber.
